We are thrilled to bring the National PKU Alliance’s (NPKUA’s) premier fundraising gala, Lifting the Limits for PKU, to New York City! PKU is a rare inherited metabolic disease characterized by the inability to utilize the essential amino acid phenylalanine (PHE). Amino acids, consumed from the food we eat, are necessary building blocks for our body proteins. People with PKU, like our precious child Kieran, cannot break down PHE. If left untreated, PHE builds up in PKU patients’ blood and body tissues. This causes severe neurological complications including IQ and memory loss, concentration problems, mood disorders, early developmental delays and intellectual disabilities.

Cocktails   *   Dinner   *   Silent and Live Auction  *   Raise the Paddle

All proceeds that are raised will go directly to the NPKUA Fund, a campaign created by the National PKU Alliance, a nonprofit 501c3 entity. This fund has been specifically developed to advance the science of PKU by funding the most promising and peer reviewed research that will lead to new therapy discoveries and a cure. Get ready for a really fun night out, please join us in our mission, as we strive to brighten futures and “lift the limits” for thousands of individuals who face daily struggles from PKU. Despite groundbreaking research that has improved treatment of PKU, the NPKUA’s work is far from over until we FIND A CURE!

For accommodations at the New York City Athletic Club call (212) 767-7133 or (212) 767-7121. Please refer to the room block: Lift the Limits for PKU to receive the discounted rate of $370/night + tax. Reservations must be made by 9/27/2018.
